Religious and Spiritual Life

The Office of Religious and Spiritual Life seeks to support students who wish to deepen or explore spirituality during their time at Whitman College.

We are a resource for established religious groups on campus and work with students from under-represented religious traditions who are looking to form a community. We also provide programming which explores the important relationship between faith and learning—the connection between mind and spirit.

Established Student Groups

  • Catholic Community on Campus
  • InterVarsity Christian Fellowship
  • Kehillat-Shalom
  • Muslim Student Association
  • South Asian Student Association
  • Zen Meditation Club

The Office of Religious and Spiritual Life serves people of all faith traditions. We also welcome those who are exploring spirituality, but do not identify with any particular religious tradition

Pastoral Support

Interfaith Chaplain, Rev. Adam Kirtley, is available for confidential pastoral counseling and support to individuals regarding any number of concerns which may include spiritual growth, values, personal crisis, relationship concerns or grief. The office welcomes individuals whose concerns may arise from issues of ethnicity, religious faith, sexual orientation, social class, gender, race or family history.

In some cases, care might best be provided by the Counseling Center, in which case a referral will be made.
